's issues with chris christie, including his health and taurdness. here's what governor christie told kelly o'donnell about the book itself. >> but the fact is that these are just two guys trying to sell a book, let's not forget that. they sensationalize things. they go to low level staff to try to get a sensational book because they want to make money. it doesn't make it valid and nothing i'm concerned about, kelly. >> nothing that he is concerned about. is he concerned about the score settling? >> it looks to me like the romney staffers who gave him all the middle level goods on him, like he overused his expense account as u.s. attorney and stayed at the four seasons instead of the days inn, who cares. clearly there was bad blood left over from the fact that he looked very good walking the beach with barack obama and that hurt governor romney. >> if all of this is true, though -- >> i think there's some irishness in here somewhere of getting even. >> we get romney talking about chris christie over the weekend on "meet the press" as a potential presidential candidate and singing a differen
in support of mcauliffe. and over in new jersey, chris christie is barn storming the state in these final 48 hours before election day. kelly o'donnell is on the trail with governor christie and he tells her he's less concerned about winning than he is by how much. >> no republican in this state has gotten 50% plus one since george bush. so we're going for 50 percent plus one. anything boabove that is a message. >> on the phone is kelly o'donnell. kelly, very good afternoon to you. what's the energy like so far on the trail and from the conversations that you've had with governor christie? >> good afternoon. there is excitement when governor christie is going from event to event and we've been watching him now for a couple of days. to y you do get the sense people are excited to see him. everyone wants their photo taken with him. so there is good energy. and in talking with voters, democrats even like him. he's a well-known national figure. they seem excited about that. we've encountered some critics of the governor and they have occasionally shouted out at him as we're along the trail, that
of chris christie could affect the hillary clinton campaign? >> the 2000 campaign was a very effective one. i was an intern on that campaign and did a heck of a job fetching coffee and answering phones. but in all seriousness, it's a great comparison from that race to this one. she didn't go in there thinking she was a given to win the senate seat. she went in as a total novice, introduced herself to voters, got her hands dirty. something that she was accused of not doing in 2008. the reason it's really important for the clinton campaign to take that approach this time around is because you look at shaquille o'neal who hardly ever weighs into politics but he did endorsing chris christie, a republican. an overwhelming majority of black voters supported barack obama. but in my 2008 "party crashing," plugging that, 35% of black voters ages 18 to 24 actually identify as independent, thomas. so while they are obama loyalists, many of them, they're not necessarily kem contract party loyalists and president obama slipped in the double digits between 2008 and 2012 among black men in part because o
jersey governor chris christie said because the government was so slow to act, that he's not entirely satisfied with how his recovery is going for new jersey. take a listen. >> it took 92 days for the federal government to act on aid to sandy victims. that compares to ten days for hurricane katrina and 17 days for hurricane gustav. i told people it was going to add things to the back ending. here's what it caused. no federal money started to flow here until the end of may. >> sir, do you support what chris christie is saying here, that this response was too slow and congress bears some of the blame for that pace? >> absolutely. congress bears a large amount of the blame. it was absolutely disgraceful that we had to wait over three months to get the aid every other region in the country got within ten days or two weeks. this was wrong. it compounded the problems we had and we had to go through the entire winter with virtually for federal aid coming in. adds governor christie said, it was nearly may by the time the process was completed. then there was so much devastation, so much damag
romney, who is going to be on "meet the press" had code names for his vp candidates. chris christie was puffer fish. tim paw lenty lake fish, rob portman was fillet of fish. we have senator marco rubio as piscado. mitt romney scratched chris christie off the list for a variety of reasons including his medical history. he kak elled verbally to his aides while watching a christie video. how much emphasis do you think the book can put on those claims about christie's vetting and wherewithal being a serious contender to be the running mate? >> well, i think you have to understand what these books are. after every presidential campaign, and i worked on a presidential campaign, there's a lot of score settling. people's egos' bruised, their feelings are hurt, and mark halperin and his co-author have figured out a way to exploit this for fun and profit and win another bok ok to follow up to "game change." i think at the end of the campaign we saw chris christie saying nice things about barack obama an his response to hurricane sandy. clearly some people are upset about that. now you've got
